Motorcycle News (UK) - - NAKED & RETRO -

Pay­ing trib­ute, as the name sug­gests, to the iconic XT500 of 1981, this XSR700based homage gets a fat tapered han­dle­bar, chunky off-road style foot­pegs, 10-spoke cast wheels with dual-pur­pose Pirelli MT60RS rub­ber (120/70 R17 front and 180/505 R17 rear), and old-school fork gaiters. The en­gine, frame and forks new bars, frame and ra­di­a­tor guards, levers and clock bracket and clock unit all get treated to black fin­ishes and there’s a black high­level Akrapovic ex­haust avail­able.

It’s ei­ther very cool or try­ing too hard
